EU ban decision primitive, says Danish Peace Council

[TamilNet, Saturday, 17 June 2006, 17:09 GMT]
"Denmark should follow Norway and not European Union in this question [of working with both parties to the conflict]. We are part of a Nordic peace mission and that gives us much better ways to support peace than EU's labelling policy which I see as very primitive. This situation shows the world need neutral Scandinavian countries to promote peace," said Lave K. Broch, vice president of Danish peace council, commenting on violence following the EU ban of LTTE.

"My point is that the EU decision to label LTTE as terrorist organization is not promoting peace. We should not choose any side other than the side of peace in a conflict," Mr Broch said.

"I believe that persons from both sides in the conflict use violence. I am strongly against any kind of use of violence and suggest that international community treat both sides in the same way. This means that any violent action from any side must be investigated and responsible persons held accountable for their actions, no matter where they come from.

"After labeling LTTE as a terrorist organization it will be difficult to negotiate peace. Innocent tamil people might end up as victims because LTTE is the main organization for the voice of the tamil people in Sri Lanka and has control of part of Sri Lanka," Broch added in his note to TamilNet.
